A lot of the age discrimination is an exaggeration

I think there's only a small cultural bias towards youth and a lot of the age discrimination is an exaggeration. Lots of laid off people I've worked with who had 35+ years under their belt can be entitled and are often cruising by. They're the same... read more

IBM Canada co-location is in the works.

They are asking people what accommodation requests they need should they work from an office location. The problem is the communication is really poor - managers are trying to ask these questions without letting the cat out of the bag too soon or... read more

Mileniums run

If you are a recent graduate run from IBM, it will not be a good experience. There will be no training, your peers will be over-worked, the client knows that IBM is over-charging for your services and the environment is toxic and sterile. After many... read more

Steady decline of GTS

I think the most poorly managed section of IBM is GTS. We see a lot of unworthy people in top positions. Employees who doesn't have any skills on the product are hired from bench or other teams. What's worse is they are not even groomed. A few good... read more

Folks, pay attention

The new IBM CFO made his plans plain on the earnings call. These are his words. The Z mainframe cycle is coming to an end, as it has run it’s course, and we expect headwinds as the year continues. IBM took a 610 million charge to make their numbers... read more

More IBM layoffs

Another big RA in GBS this week, including me (quite surprised), 3 years at IBM the second time around. Also heard many CBD'ers cut, so not sure how pervasive it was, but think significant after another earnings miss this week. Getting 90 days, then... read more

Being laid off ahead of a promotion

So everyone who I spoke with who is getting laid off is in an almost identical position as I am: they are all set for promotion in 3 months, or have just been promoted. We are guessing that they are only getting rid of people who are inline for... read more

Customers once thought IBM was special!

IBM's professional and ethical demeanor as well as the breadth of offerings ensured that one could get an audience with a company’s CEO. And with so many “solutions” there was always a reason to call on a variety of executives to talk about their... read more

Break the veil of exit agreements

Is there a possibility that someone can break the veil of exit agreements that required no legal action (or only via arbitration)? Could this be applied to one who left "voluntarily" after being given an RA notice? Especially given the ProPublica... read more

Old vs New

As someone in the under 30 bracket working on a mainframe product, this whole "cut the 'old heads' and replace with new talent" thing is ridiculously stupid. The executives don't seem to realize how much of this just plain isn't taught in schools... read more

Dear Ginni: At IBM only cronies are allowed to walk out of meetings. The rest are under threat of insubordination for speaking their minds. You have unwittingly encouraged bullies over five years, instead of creative thinkers. For a change, why don't... read more

Long history

The first IBM layoff I was involved with was in 1993. For 25 years IBM has been terrorizing its employees as it wanders aimlessly from one failed idea to the next. 25 years of clueless leadership should be enough. Sack them all and start over.

The Numbers Just Aren’t Good Enough for IBM Stock

This is a weak and only weakening story. At $150, IBM stock is more appropriately priced than at $160 and up. But I’m not comfortable buying this name until it dips further, preferably to the sub-$130 range as it did in early 2016. Until then, I... read more
